I have this laptop running Kalyway 10.5.2. Only differences between what you are looking at is mine has a 2.1GHz proc, 250GB Hdd, no web-cam and intel wireless which I knew was not going to work.


LAN worked out of the box. CPU detects fine, GFX works 100% with appropriate driver. Bluetooth did not detect Out of box. I did nothing to fix this, two days later in System Preferences: Network it detected Bluetooth. Now works. (???)


I will list issues I am having:


*To get any USB device to work it must be plugged in before the computer boots else it does not detect it. (Have not tried to fix this)


*Cannot adjust or mute volume in system preferences whatsoever(full bull all the time, can be adjusted as nomal using individual app's volume control), no output to headphones bar pops and crackle, mic untested. (Have tried to fix all of this to no avail)


*Scrolling a web page etc using the far right of the touch pad does not work. (Have not tried to fix)


*If I plug in a 2nd monitor before I boot, it uses that as the only display. If I plug it in after boot nothing is outputted to it vai the VGA port. (Have not tried to fix)


*Touch buttons (play, pause, eject etc.) do not work. (Have not tried to fix)


*Under medium to heavy usage lasts under 2 hours on battery.


*No battery level indicator. (Have not tried to fix)


*Card reader untested.




Other than the above I am thrilled with it's performance. I primarily use it for light photoshop duties, web browsing, torrents, and Oberin.


Oh, and for those interested.... Under XP that hardware can and will run Crysis on low / medium. ;)


Hope this has been useful and thorough.

I now have dual monitors working with the 8400M GS in the Dell Vostro 1510.


I used NVinject 0.2.1 availiable here: http://nvinject.free.fr/downloads.php


And edited the NVCAP value to "BAEBAQ4AAQAOAAAAAAABCwAAAAA=" as macgirl recommended.


Details on this method availiable at: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=96862
